As eCommerce experts and avid supporters of small business we LOVE this month and all it represents.

All too often as consumers our first stop while running errands or searching for something online is a big box store. We all know how easy it is to stop by Walmart or pull up the Amazon app, but for this month (and hopefully beyond) we encourage you as a consumer to think…small.

Shop local businesses, dine at local restaurants and support independently owned online retailers. Encourage your friends and colleagues to do the same as well.

Shopping small creates a positive impact both socially and economically at a local, regional and even national level.

If you’re an independent retailer make sure to take advantage of this special month.

We came across this awesome online resource that has all sorts of great ideas for promoting this month, engaging the local community, and most importantly the hashtag (#indieretail) !
